Is it too early for Muslim gays to come out?

Hiding a sin does not erase it. To keep a wife as a cover while having male lovers is not an option allowed by Koran either. To lie and say that there is no gay Muslim is a ludicrous claim. In fact segregation between sexes might lead people who are not born gays to become gays or bisexual. My personal preference would be for a Muslim scholar to condone it since we are overpopulated and there is no danger of perishing as species.

Surah 29, verse 29 : “Indeed you approach men and obstruct the road ( committing highway robbery) and commit in your meetings every evil and the answer of his people was not but that they said: “ Bring us the punishment of Allah, if you should be of truthful.”

This translation and explanation is not accurate   الرجالتأتون
means F..k men and   السبيلتقطعون
means to cut the way of reproduction. The people of Lot were not highway robbers. They were men lovers as evidenced by surah 26, verse 164: “And leave what your Lord has created for you as mates? But you are a people transgressing.” Gays in Arabic are referred to as people of Lot, and the word in Arabic is Lootee.

It is time for Muslim gays to come out of their deep, way deep closets and for Islam to accept them. We keep saying that Islam is the most tolerant religion .Why do not we show it by embracing Muslims of all sexual orientations?

In Koran, God punished the people of Lot (gays) by heavy rain. My hope is for the remaining gays to see the rainbow at the end of the rain.
